School Trustees

School Trustees

School trustees are members of their school’s governing body which is a “corporate body”. A corporate body has a legal identity that is separate from its members and as a result, individual trustees are generally protected from personal liability as a result of the governing body’s decisions and actions, provided they act honestly, reasonably and in good faith.

Responsibilities

The governing body has a range of duties and powers and a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement including setting targets for pupil achievement, managing the school’s finances, making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based, appointing staff and reviewing staff performance and pay and many more.
